Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter Wrap!


I love anything with peanut butter and anything in a wrap...so does my kid. This is a great lunchbox main course because even if your kid is in a peanut free school you can easily make this with an allergy friendly alternative spread.

I usually do not make this in advance as my child apparently has a very sensitive palate and she does not like the lemon juice I put on the apples to keep them from browning coupled with the PB so I just make it the day of and the apples stay fine until lunch.

What ya need:
1 tortilla
1/2 an apple
chia seeds
sprinkle of raisins/craisins
cinnamon and/or nutmeg

How ya do it:
Spread a tablespoon or so of peanut butter on the tortilla so it is sufficiently covered.

Dice up half an apple so it is fairly small, place in the middle of the tortilla.


Sprinkle with a few raisins or craisins or a little of both.

Sprinkle lightly with chia seeds for some added protein, then add a little cinnamon and nutmeg for some spice!

I put this in her lunch box with some berries and tomatoes and cucumber slices.

What is your favorite lunch item to take to work or school? How about for the kiddos?

  1. This looks yummmy!! My 2 year old is not a fan of peanut butter though (weird, right?!) so I may start trying some different butters to see what she likes and give this recipe a try with them. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Yeah, my daughter went through a "I hate peanut butter phase" too. I am pretty sure it was because I loved it so much though haha When she went through that I was able to use Almond Butter in place of PB and she really enjoyed that and cashew nut butter or even sunbutter.

  8. Do the chia seeds end up jello-y? I've had a hard time getting over the consistency that they take on when they're added to "wet" stuff. Other than that, it sounds yummy!

  10. Looks delicious. Wish my kids would eat this but they have an aversion to PB. Maybe if I used cream cheese or Nutella they would be all over it. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday linkup.
